“Big River looks tantalizingly moody and gorgeous, it's slinky coils meandering over grassy flats and vanishing into a deep gorge defined by the towering presence of coastal redwoods.”
“We watched an otter family swim by our kayaks! Big River is such a beautiful place, we loved it here. The staff was very helpful and friendly.”
Hank and Sue Rockwell New Zealand
